Chris Arreola of Riverside on Saturday got up from a third-round knockdown to win a split-decision over Travis Kauffman in the heavyweight semi-main event from AT&T Center in San Antonio.

Two judges – Valerie Dorsett and Ursolo Perez – favored Arreola (37-4-1) by a 114-113 count. The other judge – Wilfredo Esperon – had Kauffman winning 114-113.

The bout was underneath the junior welterweight main event between Omar Figueroa and Antonio DeMarco.

    I agreed with the 114-113 for Arreola who won the last 3 rounds. How Kauffman felt he won the 12th round is beyond me. Why they fought 12 rounds for the Texas title when they are from CA & PA someone made a big mistake. Kauffman would have won if it ended in 10. Neither showed championship qualities and any threat to any of the champions.
